No surprises that the Aussie fan has been silent for days and perks up now.

To be honest I don't come here as often during the quiet periods i.e Ramadan
Now that I know you bunch of galahs are in here I might swing by a bit more often.

The irony of an Aussie using that.

What a ceazy day of cricket that was. The Swann dismissal of Rogers was laughable. Should be an easy England victory even if they are dismissed for less than 175 in their second innings. The pitch will deteriorate and another five-for is likely from Swanners and/or Jimmy.

Interesting you should say that, I can't recall a game when both the first and last balls of the day were wickets.

All sorts of notable statistics.......... both openers in both teams out LBW in the first innings (a first, I think) ......... Watson first player to open the batting and the bowling in an Ashes Test since Percy Hornibrook (Google him if you like but it was 1928/29)............ Swann moves into the top ten of the England All-Time Leading Wicket Takers list (kicking Darren Gough out to 11th) .........

.......... oh, and this from the BBC Sport website:

When Graeme Swann took five wickets yesterday, he became the first England spinner to take five wickets in an innings of an Ashes Test at Lord's in 79 years. The last person to do it was Yorkshire left-arm great Hedley Verity.

Verity took 144 wickets in 40 Test matches, at an average of 24.37, but died fighting for his country in Sicily on 31 July 1943.


There's a good article on the website about him:

Yeah, I'll just go ahead and pipe right down now.
What a day yesterday. I switched off just as the Poms came in to bat thinking that there wouldnt be any action and they'd see the end of play with no wickets.

Fair play to England bowling was on the mark, but bloody hell the Aussies just had a shocker of a day

2 days laeft and a lead of 566, no sign of rain.

I think we should bat until tea, let's get the pitch really broken up, have a lead of over 700 and wipe the floor with them and very possibly their biggest test defeat ever.

Mmmmm

Root to smash 200 and then we'll declare if it's about tea-time.

Swann to take 5 wickets again. All over by the end of today
